OK well I am looking to buy a Baja beetle to run around town in. It will prob never go offroad but I want it to look/be a baja beetle. So my main concern is, if it is raining can I still drive the baja? If it has a stinger exhaust is it still drivable in the rain?

I thought of that but that doesnt sound very safe, is that really the only option short of changing the exhaust?

Well I guess as long as it has a flapper its good. My mother had a Baja in her teens, so when I get one I'm going to take her back in time!

If you use a metal soup can, you don't need to let it cool down first!

When it's running, the rain won't be a problem.

Like was said earlier, you can drive them in any weather condition, if you have a stinget just cover it when it rains. I perconally cant stand those flappers on the exhaust, so I just cover mine. The other option is to get a turn down style exhaust like I have on the Fasty and you dont have to worry about it at all.

And don't forget to take the cap or soup can of before you start or else you might hit the car parked behind you (it happened to some people around here I believe... Oh wait, that was me ;))

Hey im from portland, Oregon and it rains all the time there, i have a 65 baja and when i ran a stinger tailpipe on it i had one of those trucker flaps and my car ran fine as long as rain doesn't get down into the pipe you should be ok typically the exhaust is hot enough to evaporate the rain off
